Publisher's Summary

Agnes Lockwood returns to Tyneside, only to stumble across another dead body. On her first visit, she helped the police solve a murder and gained quite the reputation as an amateur sleuth. Now, she is simply looking forward to meeting again with Alan Johnson, a DCI with the Newcastle police force.

She is hoping their relationship will continue to blossom, but on her first day back in the city, she gets caught up in another murder. And this time, her intrusion into the police investigation pushes Alan Johnson’s patience to the very limit.

Thrilling Murder Mystery

I recieved this book in exchange for my honest review.
Agnes is back, and is just as feisty and tenacious as in the first novel in the series. This time she not only is helping to solve a murder mystery, but she is determined to fan the flames of her interest in Alan (the investigator). The excellent narration, along with the compelling plot come together to create a unique murder mystery. After reading this and Thornton's first book in the series, Murder on Tyneside, I felt invested in the characters that are dynamic and well-developed. If you like a good murder mystery, you should definitely check out this wonderful series.

Exciting Cozy Mystery

I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery. Agnes reminds me of a British Jessica Fletcher. She's spunky, stubborn, and extremely clever! She's always a step ahead of DCI Alan Johnson and his crew.

Agnes came back to Tyneside to rekindle her relationship with DCI Johnson, but right away finds a body in the park. The inspector is always worried about her safety, but Agnes's curiosity won't let her run away from a mystery. The narrator is excellent. She added so much to this story.

This works as a stand alone novel, but if you plan on reading Murder on Tyneside, make sure to read that one first. Otherwise this book will give some spoilers for that first book in the series.

I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in the Agnes Lockwood series!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Death on Tyneside

This is a mystery novel staged in England. If you enjoy Agathe Christie novels, you will enjoy this one.

Great mystery

Both the author Eileen Thornton and narrator Deborah Balm are new to me. Death on Tyneside is a cozy mystery and one that I found thoroughly entertaining; I loved this book from start to finish and was riveted as Agnes Lockwood finds herself embroiled in another death. Hoping to re connect with DCI Alan Johnson who she recently met up with again during another murder investigation, Agnes returns to Tyneside. Agnes is a feisty character that I found easy to relate to.
The writing was descriptive and I could easily imagine myself in Tyneside. The narrator really brought this book to life for me and did a good job keeping me entertained. This was a a book filled with a intrigue and suspense which kept me riveted as I listened to this story.

Good Story & Narration

Visiting her sons and missing Alan, she returns earlier than planned. Alan has been busy being a DCI and wondering if she was returning or not. A stroll thru her park, she remembers as a child, the birds caught her attention as well as a body. She already became known from her late visit and what happened. The.clues are missing so it seems, how will she figure it out, She told Alan what she thought of him, and completely surprised him. Another enjoyable story to figure out. Given audio, the narration made this even more enjoyable of love happening the second time. Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Brilliant.

I really love this series. The mystery is excellent with plenty of suspenseful moments. I really enjoy the subtle romantic angle as the two main characters are adorable together. Agnes is a wonderful character. I love that she enjoys a nice glass of wine almost as much as she enjoys a good murder investigation.
A clever mystery with a great cast of characters.

I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.

Enjoyed the story narration great

Second one of Eileen Thornton's books. I would describe them as enjoyable, gentle murder mystery. Agnes is a bit of a modern day Marple. Nice to meet up again with characters from the first book.

The narrator manages to convey each person with her slightly different dialect and tones. She comes back time after time seamlessly from one character to another. Her voice is really very nice to listen to. She brings each character to life.

I would recommend this book and definitely more by this narrator.
